Editorial Test Drive Review of Hyundai i10 Magna
Hyundai’s largest selling car in India is the i10 and for good reasons. For starters, the i10, with the 1.2-litre Kappa engine is India’s most fuel efficient petrol car. It might have odd ball and subjective looks but the i10 is one of the best places to be in in the Rs 4 to Rs 5 lakh bracket. The car got a slight revamp sometime back with changes done both to the outside as well as insides and the standard list of features. Step inside the i10 and you are greeted with quality of plastics and design that can shame cars from a higher price bracket. You do feel that your money was spent well and the i10 further impresses you with its feature list. For example, unlike some of the other cars in this price bracket, the i10 gets steering wheel controls even on its mid trim levels.
It also boasts of features like heated outside rear view mirrors, optional electric sun roof, height adjustable driver’s seat and reverse parking sensors. The i10 comes with two engine options, a 1.1-litre and a bigger, more powerful and efficient 1.2-litre engine. Both the engines are very good on power with the latter making the i10 the quickest car in the class easily. The gearbox is also a delight to use and this combined with a light steering makes driving the i10 a breeze in traffic.
Hyundai seems to have ticket the right boxes in the case of the i10. The company also offers an automatic gearbox variant with the 1.2-litre engine. In all, the i10 comes in nine different trim levels including two automatic ones and caters to a wide segment of users including the fair sex.
Expert Speak: High levels of quality, fuel efficient engines and an option for an automatic - the i10 is a clear winner in its class!
Pros: Value for money, featues, engine
Cons: Rear suspension, no diesel

Pros only great looks
Cons worst suspension
recently i purchased i10 magna 1.1l. god only why i did such a blunder mistake even after a great research on cars from last 6 months. my car is delivering 10kmpl with 50% AC on in city. till now i have driven 300KMS. with this pathetic mielage, i could not take my car out frequently. pl suggest any body about the feasibilty to change the fuel to lpg with govt approved kit. i got address for fittment person & the kit costs rs15,000 - and i don't know how safe it is. why am i thinking in this way is only for fuel price saving. but i don't know about the expiry of warranty for the engine after lpg kit fittment to my i10. i started hating my car and hyundai. hyundai is cheater. they feel shame for their poor fuel efficient engines, where the entire world looking and succesfully manufacturing fuel efficient engines. pl suggest immediately.
